I live close to Wake Forest where I have had couple of art shows. The Cotton Company will be hosting another one in January, 2013. Earlier, I had posted recent paintings of Joyner Park in Wake Forest. I also love Seminary. Here are two paintings from area around the Seminary. I have always wanted to paint old house by the railroad. I liked how it looked at dusk. Although it shares the same title, it was not inspired by Edward Hopper’s oil painting! I was happy to have finished entire painting without masking the railroad tracks! Or using gouache. I often use gouache for accents, but, I can’t seem to accept the idea of using masking! I change things around as I paint. And using masking will not work with that. For me.

I used only three colors to paint “Bend in the road”. I wanted to keep focus on the road and trees on each side. As with every watercolor, I learned a thing or two from these paintings. I am amazed at this wonderful medium!

If you live in Raleigh area, I will be having an open house tomorrow, December 19, at the Crabtree Chiropractic Building from 6- 8 PM. I will be showcasing and selling my recent and old works. Both originals and prints will be available…
